⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
You probably never heard of CyberDefender, but you probably heard of MyCleanPC.com, DoubleMySpeed.com, MaxMySpeed.com, and FinallyFast.com. All these websites (and lots more) are just fronts for CyberDefender. By running several cheap and poorly-scripted commercials, CyberDefender hopes that you'll be stupid enough to believe everything you heard on TV. As with other security providers that provide free scanners, CyberDefender uses hype in order to lure users into buying their products. Their free software "scans" your computers and then tells the user that there are ten thousand viruses and errors on their computer that must to removed now or else risk a cyber-catastrophe. However, in order to remove the viruses, the user must buy CyberDefender products that cost over 50 US dollars. Seems legit.
Paying for the service
—From David, 
Allen Harkleroad is the brave, little warrior who stood up to the big, nasty corporation. Harkleroad didn't really challenge or threaten CyberDefender Corporation. All he did was publish his skepticism and observations online, but CyberDefender would take none of that – after all, criticism is covered by the First Amendment amirite! CyberDefender's attorneys sent legal threats to Harkleroad and accused him of libel and fabrication.
